Recent global research and clinical trials have demonstrated that dentistry can be successful in treating mild to moderate sleep apnea, snoring and TMJ disorders. Our practice incorporates specialized dental services that use oral appliances to help ease the symptoms of sleep apnea, snoring, and jaw disorders.
We have more than a 30-year history of successfully treating the TMJ/TMD patient. Our success rate is more than 80%, utilizing traditional splints. However, many of these patients have a compromised airway in addition to their pain problem. Actually, the pain may be secondary to the airway problem. We screen all of our patients for airway deficiencies. Resolving the airway has increased our success rate for the patient with head pain issues.
